Former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives and Chairman, Governing Council of Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), Honourable Babangida Nguroje, has commiserated with the families of all those who lost their loved ones in the  communal clashes in some parts of Taraba State.

He urged the team set up by the Taraba State Government headed by the State Deputy Governor to engage the people in such a way that would not only douse the tension but will also birth both short and long term peace solutions.

He also called on the team to make efforts in unravelling the remote and immediate causes of the crisis amongst the people, stressing that violence is not a solution but constructive dialogue that would avail all stakeholders the opportunity to voice their grievances should be paramount in the search for an enduring peace in Taraba State and Nigeria in general.

In a statement issued in Abuja, the NIPC Board Chairman, who is also the Garkuwan Sardauna, pointed out that loss of lives in the crisis ridden areas of Taraba has unfortunately reached a disturbing state, adding that one way of addressing it will be to ascertain the real reasons that triggered the unrest and decisively apply the solutions and provide ways of forestalling further violence.

He further assured foreign and local investors that despite the skirmishes in some parts of the country and Taraba in particular, Nigeria remains one of the investment countries in the region and urged every prospective investor not to be discouraged.

He reiterated his call on the traditional institutions and religious leaders as well as governments at all levels to strive to do things that would foster unity amongst the people and the language of unity and love for one another.

“I urge the team headed by the Taraba State Deputy Governor to meet and engage all state holders with the view to unravel the immediate and remote causes of this crisis and to proffer solutions that would bring about a lasting peace in the affected areas.

“What we want in the country at this time is peace and not violence, what men and women of conscience should do is to preach peace because without peace we would not be able to meet up with other nations in terms of development,” Hon. Nguroje said.
